In the sports world, Paul Pogba has an ongoing subject of debate. During a test conducted on August 20 during the match between Juventus and Udinese that counted for the first day of Serie A, the 2018 world champion tested positive for testosterone on Monday.

As a result, the Frenchman was temporarily suspended by the Italian Anti-Doping Agency, who stated in a press release that “The National Anti-Doping Tribunal informs that in accordance with the recommendation of the National Anti-Doping Prosecutor, it has pronounced the provisional suspension of Paul Labile Pogba.”

Note that for his part, Paul Pogba risks up to 4 years of suspension.

This controversy involving Paul Pogba has sparked a lot of discussion on social media.

On September 11, YouTuber Tibo Inshape, who is well-known for his videos on muscle building, said that doping was a major factor in professional sports. He said “At a high (professional) level, rare are those who are not doped. It exists of course, but it is rare.

The 96th-ranked ATP tennis player Corentin Moutet attacked Tibo Inshape on Twitter, asking that how can someone say anything like that. He further added that regulations against doping are everywhere. The Frenchmen said that they put in a lot of work and are always on the lookout to perform well. The evidence that an athlete using drugs is discovered by the controls. He also feels that it is amusing to see a tweet like that from a person who is more drawn than 99% of professional sports.

Someone cited the example of Lance Armstrong who managed to win seven times before he was caught doping. Therefore proving that not everyone gets caught immediately. It is also important to note that Armstrong had to face grave consequences once he was caught. He was striped off of all his Tour de Frances.

Moutet defended himself by writing that one case does not represent the entire sports community. He again emphasized that sportsmen work very hard and it is unfair to judge all of them based on one person’s actions.
